I thought I would let you know that I will be going on vacation for the next week to Playa del Carmen, just south of Cancun. And yes, I am bragging a little bit.

But what has me excited is that this is the first trip my 3.5 year old son will remember as an airplane trip. He seems to be getting really excited about it. His airplane obsession is also starting to blossom. He walked into a store the other day and wanted to walk out with an $80 model airplane. I said no, with difficulty. He also asks to visit the airport at least twice a week.  Smile

But the best part, I showed him internet videos of St. Maarten. He was soooo happy to see that, but I had to explain to him that it wasnt Cancun!  Sad

I am feeling like such a good father...I'm sorry...tears of happiness...cant talk.

I will let you know if a future a.netter has been created on this trip.

 pray

Nah, dont worry, I can take it.

The whole trip could be a lot of fun. Their website says that they have babysitting!

All right guys, now I'm off to bed to get ready for a god-awful early morning flight. Plus I get the feeling I'll be doing some swimming tomorrow late afternoon. I'll think about all you left behind.  Wink

Jr. is looking forward to this trip. Yes, he does make the appropriate noises with his hand airplane. And now every aiplane going overhead is on its way to Cancun. Plus I placed my aviation museum cap in the bag and he started to say that he wanted to go to the airplane museum!

I might just be able to drop a little line later tomorrow, the busy life has us doing a little work on vacation, and let you know if Andes Jr. has become a future a.netter.

BTW, ANCflyer, we watched the polar express movie (his favorite) today and it shows the northern lights, so I might get an Alaska trip planned for the near future.

Well, from the previous threads on this matter, and some research, that could be as late as April or even May. But my wife knows for sure that I want to go. I got the info on that lodge up there, too.

I got my 3 year old nephew into it, aviation i mean. My sister hates me for it.
He will run to the window each time a plane or chopper flies over. Not good then that they live in between two Airfields RAF Barkston Heath, and RAF Cranwell, so thats not only small single engine trainers, and Domanie prop planes, there also close to RAF Waddington with the Nimrod and AWAC 707's and RAF Scampton with the good old Red Arrows. With all this hes running to the window alot

Thats a good man! I've gotten my son to recognize between DC-3s, DC-10s, and 747s. I think he has repeated that we are going into Cancun in a 757.

Right in town! The area looks very nice, I was in Cancun in '01. But I am more used to a laid back beach style.

Thanks.

 no  After the sun starts staying out 24/7 - as it has been for three weeks now - no more darkness at night and no more northern lights . . . they are still there, you just can't see them cause it's still daylight! February and March - good chance . . . May?  no  no  no
